Re: JobMax_Worst tool I have ever wasted good money on
but I will have to admit that many times just a little more attention to detail would benefit most ever one, and in the end I really doubt if the cost to the company would be that much as they would have less product being returned and greater customer loyalty,
Had a discussion, with a guy yesterday and he made a comment that company Microsoft was King of "Good Enough", and hardly ever have the best product, but since there a giant in the industry they can do "good enough" and still sell product,
and it seemed not that long ago, companies tried to produce the "BEST" in most ever product they made, and the end results was you can go out and pick up your grandpas tools and they still function and work like the day they were made,
now it seems like if you get a few years out of a tool before it goes you feel like it was a good buy, we have been brain washed in to this throw away society of temporary short lived products, and you will need to up grade to the next model when it comes out, so why make it any better,
but even the companies that made good products many times will not service them so one is forced in to buying new and replacing some thing for a very small part or failure,
one day I was looking up a part for a Dewalt drill, and I was amazed that they have page after page after page of small print single file model numbers of drills seemed like there was 10+ pages of units listed, why change ever few days? at one time they came up with a good tool and it was the tool in the book for 20 to 30 years, now if it lasts a year many times that is remarkable,
maybe the engineers at Ridgid should set up and take note of the problem and improve on the units, they sell and do there BEST on ever tool and BE THE BEST, not just GOOD ENOUGH.
BUY OUR TOOLS THERE GOOD ENOUGH, maybe,
No it may not be rocket science, but may be an engineer that designs critical air craft components maybe could help the tool designers at Ridgid do a better job if they would take head.
